The Cultural Flow of Electronic Music

Even in this era of globalization, regional and national characteristics continue to hold their ground as predominate forces within niche markets. Electronic music is a globally absorbed genre; with little in the way of language restrictions or age consensus, electronic music has the potential to make inroads into cultures where more nationalized, mainstream artists can't venture.

Looking at a larger, global perspective may help us to understand local cultural flow, distribution networks, and ultimately how to manage the flow from micro-communities to macro-entities. This panel is devised to uncover the view of professionals working in other countries, how they fit their local electronic music scene into the global market, and how Canada's electronic music scene is operating within their markets.

International representatives of emerging markets will be at MUTEK 2004 to discuss market opportunities.
